Egg on your face? It happened at Rising Star Racing!

By  | 

Josef Newgarden, Spencer Pigot and Neil Alberico were all sponsored by Rising Star Racing while climbing the road to IndyCar, and all can now say that they have participated in one of the newest crazes to come from late night TV: Egg Russian Roulette.

Newgarden, driving for Ed Carpenter Racing in IndyCar, became the host for the contest. Rahal/Letterman/Lanigan Racing’s second IndyCar driver Pigot and Carlin’s third Indy Lights driver Alberico were up for the challenge as the eggs were brought out.

The premise is simple as a dozen eggs are presented to the contestants with eight of them hardboiled and four of them raw.  The contestants must smash the eggs on their foreheads until one contestant has smashed two raw eggs.

Who winds up with the most egg on their face?  Well, take a look at the video below!
